Sitting here in Szilassy Park as it might in some astronomy buff's garden, Christian Waldvogel's spherical astrolabe represents an imaginary solar system. The complex relations between celestial bodies are represented by metal rings that interlock and turn in independent fashion.

This is a prgressive project whose wax planets were produced by a Random Positioning Machine of the artist's design, and that imitates zero gravity conditions. Within this machine, melted wax flows onto a device that rotates randomly, gradually forming quite a regular sphere. This attests how surprisingly close chaos (random movements) and perfection (the sphere shape) stand. With respect to the theories put forward by Giordano Bruno, who asserted that stars are so many other suns, implying the existence of other systems with earth-like planets — for which he was sent to the stake in 1600 — Waldvogel's piece brings out the fact that seeking to understand the mechanisms behind the celestial spheres is linked to understanding ourselves and the search for truth.Bex & Arts 2014 Emergences, catalogue text (excerpt), by Isaline Vuille
